We should be focusing on OBAMA! WHY DO YOU LET HIM OFF THE HOOK? Free enterprise is not the problem - it's the answer to the current problems! What we have now is corporate fascism, not free enterprise. The original OWM protest was started as a backlash against the New World Order, the Federal Reserve, Obama's banker bailouts, monopolistic control and corporate person-hood. It's obvious that the Creation of a New World Order tops the list of the Reserve's near future priorities, and that the Obama Administration, to rub salt into the wound, far from bringing those financial swindlers to justice, have hired their number one hit man, Ben 'New World Order' Bernanke - the boss of the privately owned Federal Reserve - as its financial advisor!And lets be under no illusion where Bernanke's affiliations lie: On August 25, 2006, he made a presentation to the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City’s 30th Annual Economic Symposium. The title of Bernanke’s presentation: “Global Economic Integration: What’s New and What’s Not.”. In which he depicts global economic integration as an exclusively technology-driven process. Thus the section entitled “A Short History of Global Economic Integration” which traces the process in glowing terms to the Romans who 'unified their far-flung empire through an extensive transportation network and a common language, legal system, and currency.' It's interesting to note, that the Roman word fasci is where the word fascist comes from. 'It was a symbol used widely in the Roman Empire and it consists of rods bound together around an axe. This axe is the origin of the term Axis Powers for the fascist countries in the Second World War. The symbolism is of people and countries bound together under a common centralised dictatorship.' (romanfasci.blogspot.com/). Obama is a fascist pig!

sure man, its not about blame, its about constructively building something productive, and all you blameophiles out there are pretty much just like foxnews lite, whichever side you are on.

The Democrats under the leadership of Obama bailed out wall street and the bankers, when he could have brought them to justice. Not about blame? You must be a democrat

first of all, you're wrong, Bush is as "responsible" as Congress, and Obama is a little less to blame in my mind. Does not matter if I am independent or democrat, i just know that blame does not work too well. Do you have a response to that or are you just going to call for Obama's head all day? I hope you were calling for Bush's head when he announced the bailouts in Sept. 09, oh wait, you either were not smart enough to do that, or Rush didn't tell you too, right?

Yes, I would call for both their heads! Fascist pigs and dogs, that's what they are. Smash the patriot act!

ok, i see where you're coming from, an anarchist that is sick of government. i would say the best strategy for you is to start a campaign to get some state - maybe idaho, montana, new hampshire, turned into an anarchist state with absolutely no state or federal interference.

Sorry pal, that's not where I'm coming from. I believe in DEMOCRACY which puts me at odds with the democrats and the republicans, and probably half the people on this forum. I believe in representative government, in the Constitution ( before it was hacked to bits), free speech, private enterprise, as opposed to corporate fascism....Why? Because security without freedom is not worth having.

Thank you for pointing that out, probably point out that most of the other third comes from rich owners of corporations.

but let me ask you this: how many people do apple/google/twitter/facebook/microsoft, in other words the next generation (cept softy of course) employ compared to what the the big 3 used to employ?

in other words divide their combined market cap by employees and you get a continuously expanding number as labor is devalued. sure the consumer gets a great deal. but labor is the achilles heel of capitalism . . . how would you fix it? or is there no problem?

So you're saying there isn't enough philanthropy in the US?
